    Wasnt there a study some time ago that showed that potheads can develop that male breast disorder...gynomastia or something....i think....

    I don't know of any study like that, but I can tell you that smoking pot does not make men grow breasts.

    This is what you are talking about

    [Gyne refers to female, and mastia refers to the breast. Gynecomastia is strictly a male disease and is any growth of the adipose (fatty) and glandular tissue in a male breast. Not all breast growth in men is considered abnormal, just excess growth.

    Finally, drugs can also cause breast enlargement. Estrogens are given to men to treat prostate cancer and a few other diseases. Marijuana and heroin, along with some prescription drugs, have estrogen effects in some men. On the list are methyldopa (for blood pressure), cimetidine (for peptic ulcers), diazepam (Valium), antidepressants, and spironolactone (a diuretic).]

    This is not a propaganda site, it is a neutral medical source.

    Well, that website is mistaken about the part on marijuana. It does not raise (or lower) estrogen levels in men.

    Like most facts of marijuana...this one is probly blown out of proportion...most likely its just a fraction of users that have this happen...just another fact for DARE to use over and over and over

    No, this hasn't happened to a fraction of marijuana users. Smoking pot does not make men grow breasts.

    Actually I bet it would because of the increase in estrogen.

    Do I need to keep repeating myself? Smoking pot does not increase your estrogen levels. Do I have to type out some studies?

    EDIT

    why the hell would weed increase estrogen levels? i think people misunderstand the horribly worded propaganda, "weed makes you grow breasts" but theyre really just connecting weed to munchies and people getting fatter + using it in that negative way

    i belive Blazed Jea hit the nail on the head, I was thinking the same thing, I belive people pig out while high, and get more fat deposits in the chest area, thus blaming pot for the increase in fat mass.

    So indirectly Pot is the cause, but actually it's just from eating too much.

    At least that's my take on it...

    coming from a small-chested female who's been smoking daily for 3yrs, weed does NOT make your breasts grow if you are female.. not that i've seen yet!! :p

    What a great thread.... You have no clue how much I needed this giggle :)

    ...Nice scientific arguemt actually with a double negative proof and alternative hypotheses... And Cheeba Monkey in the background telling everyone where to go :eek: to find the information already proven.

    ... and my take? let's just say if it were true that smoking marijuana created uncontrolled breast growth due to an increase in estrogen levels in taken into the human body causing mammary enlargement -- Mama would be able to make a helluva good living in Las Vegas instead of being a.... oops...almost told :goof:

    ...cookies for everyone!
